University of Alabama Recruitment 2022
 
Well everyone, we're here! The biggest recruitment in the country with 2,575 (!!) PNMs hoping to find their home away from home! Here is the schedule for the week.

Wednesday, August 3 - Friday, August 5: Early Move-In (on-campus only)
Saturday, August 6: Convocation (morning)
Saturday, August 6: Open House (afternoon)
Sunday, August 7: Philanthropy Day I
Monday, August 8: Philanthropy Day II
Tuesday, August 9: Philanthropy Day III
Wednesday, August 10: Sisterhood Day I
Thursday, August 11: Sisterhood Day II
Friday, August 12: Sisterhood Day III
Saturday, August 13: Preference Day I
Sunday, August 14: Bid Day

All of the rounds will be in person this year thankfully, though if I'm correct open house has become a round of watching chapter videos. To everyone involved, good luck and may there be another successful recruitment!

Interesting! I was wondering how the PNMs were supposed to go to Convocation in the morning and then *all* of the chapters that day. That's nice that they are going to watch the videos and rank; but, I'm pretty sure we all know that the chapters will be cutting on grades, Instagram profiles, (recs?), and who they know, etc. The PNMs watching the videos and ranking chapters is just a formality and going through the motions. :o

Best of luck for each PNM to be matched with the PERFECT house for her!

Isnít Arkansas getting close in total number of PNMs?

They had 2274 PNMs registered. As someone who went to a school with 20-30 people in a pledge class, these huge SEC numbers baffle me still!

It just grew over time....and then Nick Saban hit campus....applications go up after every NC! It's really weird...but we love it!

How many sororities participate in NPC rush? (and how many NPC sororities don't have chapters at UA?)

I believe 19 for first round and then Sigma Delta Tau drops off and does a much smaller version of formal recruitment. They just don't have the numbers to host parties like the other houses. They did however participate in 2020 when it was virtual.

Monster recruitment numbers for sureÖ..

Assuming both schools had a 93% bid rate, Alabamas new member classes would be at 133 vs Arkansas at 192!! :eek::eek::eek:

Naraht, there are 26 NPC sororities.

Alabama has 18 NPC sororities. SDT does the first round, but then they do their own thing.

There is also a Christian sorority that isn't an NPC one that participates the first day and then does their own thing similar to SDT

This may seem a bit off topic but the work week themes are amazing! A banner for each day and the great costumes the actives are wearing are great!

Question from a Northerner who somehow couldn't locate the answer: what is the maximum number of invites a rushee may accept during each round :confused:
